Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Polis Lauds CSU-Global Selection as Department of Education Alternative Credit Site
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today congratulated the Colorado State University-Global Campus on their selection for two of the United States Department of Education’s first Experimental Site programs. The Experimental Site programs will allow the university flexibility to offer federal financial aid for alternative credit programs, including demonstration of previous knowledge and portfolio projects. The inclusion of these types of “real-world” experiences in calculating credits for financial aid purposes will reduce the cost and time to earn a bachelor’s degree.    “The Department of Education has made a tremendous choice in selecting CSU-Global as one of their first experimental sites for flexible credit programs,” said Rep. Polis. “Offering students the opportunity to apply skills that they have gained throughout their professional careers or non-collegiate learning towards college degrees will decrease the costs of higher education and help adult lear
Polis: ‘Republicans holding our national security hostage’
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today issued the following statement in response to House Republicans' playing reckless political games with our national security: “Today House Republicans confirmed they lack the ability to responsibly govern. Rather than passing a bill to protect our homeland security, they are playing politics with our safety. House Republicans are holding our national security hostage to their desires to deport dreamers and other aspiring Americans." “At a time when we should be passing a clean Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill, Republicans are once again manufacturing a crisis. Instead of protecting our homeland, Republicans have voted to deport millions of aspiring Americans who have registered, undergone background checks, and paid fees in order to get in line with the law. America deserves better than Republican leaders who lack the desire or ability to stand up to the most extreme factions of their party and put out national security

He laid out many bold and forward-looking plans that have the potential to improve the strength of our economy, the security of our country, and the lives of all Americans.  “I am particularly excited by the President’s renewed commitment to education and privacy issues, and his continued focus on fixing our broken immigration system. His dedication to creating new opportunity for middle class families remains a core focus of the administration and one that I will work to support in Congress. “Over the past several weeks, culminating with tonight’s speech, the President has laid out new plans to make college more affordable for all Americans, including a historic push to expand access to community college, improve some of our nation’s
